Protestors gathered Friday night outside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) home in Louisville to read Coretta Scott King's 1986 letter against new Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The letter rose to controversy earlier this week when Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) tried to read it ahead of a floor vote on Sessions's confirmation. McConnell led a GOP vote to bar her from speaking.
“Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech,” McConnell explained. “She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
